Hostomel, Ukraine

Tamara stands in front of her destroyed house. She has seven children, 17 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She and her family of nine now live in the shed, near their ruined house. Friends gave them a refrigerator, blankets, and a gas cylinder. An NGO gave them a stove and dishes. "It was very difficult, [the Russians] were shelling and shelling, from this side over the river and from the other side too and we were in the middle. For a whole week we were hiding in our cellar from the bombing. Eventually we left with only the clothes we had on. Our house is just a ruin now. Everything that we had stayed in the house. I am scared that if I go inside it might fall on me. I am waiting for a committee which will decide what to do next. We don't have money for a new house".
